Companies in the IT circle like to organize an annual meeting to show the company's performance over the past year and its outlook for the coming year, and Citrix is no exception. Every January, we find a beautiful city to host the Summit Convention, this year's event selected Orange County, Los Angeles, USA. (Orange County does not know where, check the Los Angeles Disney will know,:))

Recalling the 2015 Citrix has actually experienced a very difficult 1 years, at the end of 2015 for Citrix Service for more than 15 years of kindness old man Mark Templton left Citrix CEO Post, January 2016 late Kirill Mr. Tatarinov, who has been a CEO of Citrix for a full 1 years this January, has seen the whole year as a very smooth upward curve from the time of Citrix stock prices. The latest announcements show that Citrix will be expanding globally in the near future, and Wall Street's stock rating for Citrix has been adjusted to buy.

Note that in 2016 Citrix entered a new stable rise, and from a technical point of view. Product updates over the past year of each product line, as well as the Citrix Summit, its inherent product advantages are continued to consolidate, development is to focus on the future, but also consider now, the new Citrix management, style seems to be more pragmatic.

On the first day of keynote, for most people, the product launch was probably the most exciting, but Citrix announced a partnership with F1 's top team, Red Bull. As one of the most successful F1 teams in the last 10 years, Citrix has been chosen as the core of its global technology services support system, and it is believed to be a recognition of Citrix products, solutions and frontline personnel.

Of course the live Red Bull team video, that feeling is a word, ox!

Back to the product itself, Citrix after 26 years of development, the current product line mainly includes:

Xen family: XenDesktop, XenApp, XenServer, XenMobile. The current message is that Xenmobile,xenserver products are incorporated into the Xendesktop,xenapp product line for a unified roadmap management.

Networking:netscaler,netscaler Sd-wan. The original branch Repart is now unified renamed NetScaler Sd-wan, and will vigorously develop this product line.

Data Sync:sharefile, Rightsignature. An online enterprise-class document sharing solution.

In addition, Citrix Cloud, which Citrix started from the end of 1, will be an answer from Citrix for the cloud market Citrix. Citrix Cloud will be the first platform to host or deliver Citrix solutions, as a follow-up opportunity to chat with Citrix Cloud alone. (but not the only platform, such as the Xen product line, can still be delivered through traditional platforms.) )

At the same time, each product line will be broken in the past to product line for the management system of the vertical shaft mode, and the formation of a new cross-cutting product line management system. Future Citrix products and development of all product lines will be unified by the following two people to be responsible for (look at the age or very senior AH;)) believe that Citrix future products will be more interactive, I personally look forward to this.

Back to each specific product, start with the Xen family ily. (The following two points is to let me compare the release of surprised)

1. Citrix Ready HCI Workspace Appliance Program

Over the past two years, with Nutanix as the representative of hyper-converged solutions more and more mature, more and more users recognize and accept HCI this way. However, in the Citrix-owned product line, XenServer, which is the most relevant to HCI, does not yet offer a solution similar to VMware Vsan, so Citrix itself is not able to provide this type of HCI solution. Based on this, Citrix leverages the ecosystem and leverages the power of its partners to address this part of the user's needs.

650) this.width=650; "src=" Https://s2.51cto.com/wyfs02/M01/8C/E3/wKiom1h8i23DIiITAACsBIP6Jyw489.jpg "title=" Citrix Ready hci.jpg "alt=" Wkiom1h8i23diiitaacsbip6jyw489.jpg "/>

At the same time, Citrix looks at the current VDI solution from its own merits, and finds that most users are very uncomfortable with initial deployment, configuration, and monitoring after deployment is not ideal (especially for small and medium customer groups). Based on this, Citrix leverages the Smart Tools (Original Lifecycle Manager) components in Citrix Cloud with the appliance of the HCI vendor, enabling the user to procure the supporting HCI server to power up, You can automate configuration, deployment, and more within a few hours. Implement an interactive mode for managing, monitoring, and hosting your local hosted operations in the cloud.

At this stage, Citrix and HPE and Altantis (a U.S.-native SDS manufacturer) as a first-out workspace appliance partners to provide solutions.

I saw the demo at the scene is very exciting, users only need to enter some basic information, follow-up fully automated deployment, no manual intervention. (hopefully Citrix will be able to land on Citrix Cloud as soon as possible, perfecting its entire product ecosystem.) )

It is said that a number of vendors are currently in the process of final custom development in order to complete and Citrix HCI Workspace Appliance ready in the most disconnected time. Please let us have your attention.

2. Citrix acquires Unidesk

650) this.width=650; "src=" Https://s2.51cto.com/wyfs02/M02/8C/E4/wKiom1h8n37RxMX5AAAbpwI5COU047.png "title=" Unidesk-logo-color_35.png "style=" white-space:normal; "alt=" Wkiom1h8n37rxmx5aaabpwi5cou047.png "/>

If users with deep use of VDI know (this is not limited to Citrix), in fact, with the underlying virtualization technology, the current impact on users to accept, recognize VDI is very important one reason is the user personalization problem is difficult to solve. (The individual thinks that many cost problems are also due to the individual needs of the extension)

As the saying goes, 100 people see a dream of red mansions will have 100 Lin Daiyu. In the case of VDI scenario, the same computer is sent to the user, everyone's desktop, wallpaper, shortcuts and so on will be different. In the case of Citrix, Citrix generally recommends that users use a standardized (or called pooled/pool) desktop and then address User configuration issues through UPM.

However, the problem is that some users sometimes need specific applications to produce specific application data (app), whereas traditionally the traditional way is to package the application software that users need to use in the same image, and then choose to use it when the user logs in. and user data roaming through UPM to a network disk, encountering big data applications, is certainly not an optimal combination of usage experience.

Unidesk can be resolved is that the user needs to package the application into a VHD/VMDK file, and then assigned to the user/user group, when the user log in, Unidesk can be based on this user's settings to associate this VHD/VMDK file to the login of their access to the VM, This loads the application into the VM, making the user feel that the application is being used in the same system.

This separates the user's operating system, applications, and application-generated application data from the user's personal data to a greater degree.

The system, application differentiation of more delicate, more granular degree.

650) this.width=650; "src=" Https://s2.51cto.com/wyfs02/M00/8C/E4/wKiom1h8oErxhg-cAADT25Ulc0k182.jpg "title=" Office Lens 20170109-140408.jpg "alt=" Wkiom1h8oerxhg-caadt25ulc0k182.jpg "/>

And compared to other similar products, Unidesk has several other advantages that others do not:

A. Unidesk can support multiple platforms at the same time, from VMware Vsphere,citrix Xenserver,microsoft Hyper-V to Nutanix ahv,azure platform. This is also an important reason for Citrix to buy him, and the platform is Unlimited. Unidesk has a mechanism to change the packaged application package directly to the specified platform. For example, the previous choice is vsphere, the user subsequently migrated to Nutanix AHV, then directly select AHV.

B. Unidesk's strong and comprehensive support for the Citrix platform, from Mcs,pvs to VDI/HSD, is supported by almost all of Citrix's delivery forms and Windows desktop types. In particular, Xenapp,unidesk can be based on the user session to allocate the application set, the combination of which is absolutely the artifact of the existence. For example, the same XenApp server, users logged on to see different applications, and in the addition of the removal program, see the program is also different.

C. Unidesk can deliver a variety of underlying programs, including drivers, antivirus engines, Vdas, and so on, so that later is not similar to VDA upgrade can be handed to unidesk. :)

In addition, Xen family has not released Xenmobile 10.4,xenserver 7.1 LTSR.

XenServer 7.1 LTSR will provide enterprise-class technology services similar to the XenDesktop LTSR for up to 10 years (5+5), looking to build xenserver as the most stable server virtualization platform.

At the same time XenServer 7.1 LTSR will also achieve several long-awaited features:

A. Nutanix Support XenServer

Starting with the XenServer 7.1 release, Nutanix will fully support XenServer, so Nutanix+xenserver will be one of the best and most cost-effective platform combinations for Citrix VDI solutions.

B. PVS Accelerator

At XenServer 7.1 + PVS 7.13 (7.12 TP), XenServer will provide a PVS accelerator feature that can store the PVS cache directly in XenServer DOM0, This eliminates the need to go to the PVS server to read the data when the VM starts, which will reduce the network bandwidth requirements and the VM's startup speed.

C. XenServer Hotfix reboot Behavior

In the past, xenserver every dozen patches need to be restarted this behavior is believed to have been criticized by many people, in the new version

I. If the kernel patch is not adjusted, in most cases it will be possible to take effect without restarting the xenserver.

II. You can install multiple patches at once without having to install them one at a time.

of course, in addition, like the Hdx,xendesktop product line update is not here to repeat. Agreement section Update please see my previous article,Citrix publishes Next generation remote delivery protocol, EDT

Well, let's introduce the Xen family section here today, and follow up on the Citrix Cloud,networking and Sharefile sections.
